Fred Dunlap accepted the award on Dick Biddle's behalf and explained that Dick was unable to attend due to illness. He made a fine speech about Dick's character and achievements followed by a note he read out from Dick. There was no hint of any ill will. To the contrary, everyone was in good spirits and thoroughly enjoyed the personal remarks of all the Hall of Honor award recipients. We have a lot to be proud of.

Go 'gate!
